"Our Brandywine captures the beauty that can be found throughout the Brandywine Valley. From Winterthur to the Grand Opera House, this collection of oil paintings conjures up wonderful memories for me, as I am sure it will for anyone who is familiar with the splendor of Northern Delaware. I am proud to display the works of J.R. Huntsberger in my Washington, D.C. office for all to see."
U.S. Senator Thomas R. Carper
"Our Brandywine provides a glimpse over the shoulder of one of Delaware's excellent oil painters. James Huntsberger's paintings and the accompanying text and maps will tempt you to explore our home territory, to see the landmarks, and learn our history."
Barbara E. Benson, Executive Director, Historical Society of Delaware
The Huntsbergers, with enormous devotion and dedication, have produced fresh and intense views of much-honored places in the region they love so much. Beyond the colorful and carefully painted images of James R. Huntsberger, Janet Davis Huntsberger provides important information about each place, information not readily available elsewhere, made more valuable because it is so easily accessible in this fine book. We have much to learn from the Huntsbergers.
